    Very comfortable work environment, very nice colleagues, overall a great experience.

    Manager - Business Development (Current Employee) Mississauga, ON (Canada)

    ProsExtremely stable company to work for. Very supportive community there to help with work-life balance in a major way.

    ConsVery little vertical career opportunities. Not a lot of challenges after your first year.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLateral moves are not the same as vertical ones. A lateral move costs me another year of my life - time is a treasure we have when we're young and which we are tempted to give away all too freely. I'm getting older, and being more cautious with what treasure I have remaining.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great workplace, lots to learn

    Account Associate (Current Employee) Vancouver, BC (Canada)

    Pros- Great entry level salary and compensation, uncapped commission - work hard and earn lots
    - Excellent benefits and fexible benefits
    - Stock option with company contribution match
    - Group RSP option
    - Huge support team
    - Wide variety of positions available
    - Company invests lots of money into training and career development

    Cons- Like any company, promotions are not handed to you - you have to work hard, get noticed, then ask for them - distinguish yourself from the 'Lifers' and your manager will support your career development
    - Many positions within Bell may not appear immediately accessible, do your homework!
    - For technology company, the computers seem to be made in 1997
    - There is employee appreciation at the local team level, but big-picture you're just a number (expected from a big corporation)
    - have to learn to use a million different apps (there's a program for every process, and they are not all consolidated)
    - Like any company will lots of employees, you will cross roads with some really incompetent ones, and the occasional bad apple - LIFE.

    If George Cope can clone himself, Bell has it made - otherwise...

    Marketing (Former Employee)

    ProsMy division was a collaborative, friendly culture with work-life balance. We had the opportunity for flexible hours to accommodate the needs of our families (day care, school schedules, medical appointments), and to work from home using the secure network - a great advantage to a company trying to sell such services to other businesses!

    ConsThere was not much room for advancement given how often Bell lays off staff. The semi-annual performance-review process is not very useful to management nor employees. The time to calibrate the various managers' measurements of their respective staff to each other is not at the end of the review period, but at the beginning. For a lot of us, it felt like the whole process and outcome was a rationalization to not pay earned bonuses and keep salaries at least in line with inflation.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet George Cope's vision down to the level of every manager as soon as possible.

    Great boost to learning corporate experience

    Technical Support (Former Employee) Mississauga, ON (Canada)

    ProsAll working staff act professionally and are great people to network with.
    The working environment is extremely good. There are little to none working politics involved which is great motivator.

    ConsBell Mobility needs to develop more social programs where employees can contribute and give back to the community in social events such as blood drive and more.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeeping passionate employees motivated will always boost productivity.
